How To Overcome Frustration, Redirect Your Energies And Succeed In Your Business

We get frustrated when things don’t go the way we want them to. When we set goals and make plans, other circumstances can make us fall short of achieving our desired purpose. In business, especially the e-commerce industry, it’s pretty easy to get frustrated and tired.

Imagine working so hard on your products, including its manufacturing and shipping process, then, you only a few sales that you can count on one hand, and then to top it off, you end up getting crappy reviews from your customers! Maybe something went wrong along the way, but when you think about all the energy invested in this product, you are most certainly going to feel exasperated.

THIS IS NORMAL!

What isn’t okay is allowing your frustrations dictate your decisions. Emotion and business mixed together is a bad cocktail and a recipe for disaster. To put things in perspective, let’s look at some common frustrations when it comes to business.

  1. Lack of Profits: This is a major reason to get frustrated. If profits aren’t coming in, then why am I still here doing business? Lack of money leads to lack of motivation.
  2. Lack of Control: Having next to no flexibility when it comes to your schedule
  3. Nothing seems to be working: Regardless of how many books or articles you’ve read about your business, things still don’t seem to be working out for you.

Peradventure you find yourself struggling with any of these frustrations, you don’t need to fret! This is a common theme amongst entrepreneurs. The road to success isn’t always as smooth as it appears to be, how you deal with the gallops will determine if you will get to your final destination.

To overcome frustration, you need to go back to the drawing board. Taking a step back will allow you to see the bigger picture and get you refocused. How can you do this?

  1. Your Vision: Having a clear vision in mind helps put your business in focus, but not only that, it can also help serve as a reminder of why you do what you do. In trying times, you can look back to your well spelled out vision for yourself and your business and you can draw inspiration and motivation from this.

 

  1. Working with the right people: There is no quick way to success, but having the right team is undoubtedly a booster! Bad factories can sell you subpar products which will lead to angry customers and messy reviews. Ensure you are working with the right people so there is no break in the chain of quality you offer to your customers. If you are a busy person and cannot afford the time to attend to the nitty-gritty of your online store, then it is advisable you hire a competent VA, as this would help simplify things for you.

 

  1. Efficient Implementation: When trying out new things, perhaps from books or articles you’ve read; always ensure you are following the procedures stated in these materials correctly. Keep a record to track your progress and cut off anything that isn’t working. There is no point to continue on a road that leads to nowhere. Einstein once said that it is the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

 

  1. Track Progress: Endeavor to keep a track record of your progress and failures, no matter how small they may be. It’s easy to lose focus when you succeed and bask in the glory of the moment, but you should time out to record the processes that led to that success. Documenting your progress helps construct a roadmap for you to follow to consistent success. This way, you will know what works and what doesn’t, it will help organize your business process and allow you to remain consistent.

As we mentioned, frustration is almost inescapable, but you can mitigate its effects and give your business a better chance at succeeding. When things aren’t working out the way you want, it is always best to reevaluate your business strategy, bolster it with new ideas and techniques.

I find it super difficult to find a local dropshipper with lower cost compared to the competitors on amazon.com , I have like 4 wholesellers with different products most of them are expensier than those on amazon is it possible to find cheapers ones??

That's why doing it on Shopify makes more sense, like the course is teaching.. So that you can mark up prices higher and no competition or related products are shown!
Also I believe it's possible to find products with better profit margins on Amazon. also remember you can still bundle it!
I think having an amazon dropship business could be helpful for a lot of ppl? but shopify is a way to go to start it. Amazon still better for FBA!

hi guys.. Can I get BAD product reviews deleted off my products page?

Claudia says at 21:25 et
It's very rare to get bad review removed.. Usually it's better to prevent them like we teach in the course.. see video about negative feedback removal.. Also read https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/?nodeId=12177361
Also dont over sweat about bad reviews, it's natural for any good product to have 1-2 one-star reviews, nobody is perfect and your customer don't expect just 5 start reviews, it might even look suspicious and fake.

Check the videos called "
TEELAUNCH App: How To Start your own Shopify Store WITHOUT DROPSHI
PPING AT ALL!
And "Amazon FBA without big investments"

Bottom line you dont need 5k to get started with ecommerce. Start your Shopify store or simply do teelaunch business or even Amazon FBA WITHOUT whitelabelling ! Tons of oppotunities!

How do you know if the Traffic is Warm hot or cold? I want to launch an AD right away can i just start targeting my niche with different variations of ads right away as i am not looking for comments etc just sales. The FB ADS training is a little unclear.

hi James. The traffic that never saw your brand is a cold one. Imagine you have a spokeperson that is doing all the selling in the video. So to warm up the traffic, people need to know more about him and get used to see him as a head of community, as expert in your niche, so they start to buy from him.

If you do "everything store" without a leading actor or a good story, then another approach can be used, for example contest giveaway, or buy 1 get 1 free, or flash sale or "free just pay for shipping gift" etc.

Cold = never heard of your brand or product
Warm = already saw you and needs further pushing to sale with retargeting!

Bill says at 08:19 et
So Im new....still doing research for a niche...what I'm finding is using the Hotcakes competitor spy tool, when I do find something that I might like to sell I find out the competitor didn't get it from Aliexpress. This happens more often that not with the biggest Shopify stores. What other dropshipper might they be using?

It does not have to be only Aliexpress. Check the local dropshipping supplier video, you can also find local suppliers!
